Elites are inevitable; their legitimacy and continuity is not. Ours lack the virtue and wisdom needed for good governance and leadership.

Our national elite is united enough to have the vices of a ruling class, but not the virtues. In particular, they are cohesive enough to be perceived as oppressive by much of the populace, but they are rarely gracious and conciliatory when needed. They know how to make enemies, but not friends.

Culturally and ideologically, America’s elites have consolidated into a regime, with Big Tech, the legacy media, academia, Big Business, the entertainment industry, and, of course, the leaders of the Democratic Party, all singing from the same hymnal, even if they sometimes squabble over the key. But many citizens refuse to join in.

Our Elites Have Nothing to Appeal to But Themselves The American ruling class thus faces an ancient problem: how do political, cultural, and economic winners convince everyone else to accept the system; how do elites secure the consent of non-elites? Members of our ruling class cannot appeal to religion or immemorial custom to justify their place. Indeed, they cannot appeal to much of anything beyond their own supposed merits, both personal (they earned their place) and as a class (they believe themselves to be wise and leading us well).

But the superlative merits of our ruling class are less obvious to the rest of us. Thus, hardly a day goes by without The ..........

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

These Effete Elite PlutocRATZ are incompetent because of their self-serving Marxist groupthink. RATZ and RINOZ also believe they can destroy America so they can use their authoritative power to subjugate and enslave WeThePeople...all RATZ are evil anti-American, anti+Liberty, and an existential threat to all that is Good and Pure. Shakespeare famously said, "First, kill all the lawyers...". Well, just make sure we get each and every Effete Elite PlutocRAT while we carry out the Bardz sage advice.

Sincerely...MUD

BTW...no assassinations please...we will convict DemRATZ for Sedition and Treason and take out these lowlife Scumbagz with legally- formed firing squads. WeThePeople must remain sticklers for Law and Order.

" Why America’s Ruling Class Is So Incompetent "

Because they are only actors.

They only say / do what they are told to. Most do not have enough sense to get out of the rain. The true power is wielded by TPTB, which are in the background. Behind the curtain if you will.

All we see is political theater. The true PTB write the script, cast the characters, direct the play, etc. It is all just BS, like a movie, or WWF.

They argue, etc, to make the peons think they are on their side. In reality, they are acting, and are all good buddies. When the cameras are off, they are paling around, having drinks, dinner together, etc !

They laugh at the peons that fall for it.

Any one that does not understand all that, is a fool.

Remember all that bickering between Bush & Clinton ? Then Bush's mom, saying Bill was " like her son " ?

Remember all the " lock her up, lock her up, lock her up " ? Then as soon as the election was over, we heard " Well, Hillary is good people, she's suffered enough " ???

Those that are really in charge of the direction of our country - Fiscal policy, foreign policy, domestic policy, etc learned from PT Barnum. The public actors - politicians, just follow their orders ! If they do not, they are threatened or blackmailed. Then they could lose their livelyhood, or what ever is the most important to them.

Republicans / Democrats, does not matter. They are both rwo sides of the same coin.

No matter who is in charge, US fiscal - foreign - monetary policy remains the same.

Any good guys that manage to get up the ladder are never allowed to do anything !

Those that we see are basically paid idiots !

Sorry, that is reality.

George Bush's post-Presidency embrace of the Vile, anti-American traitor, William Jefferson Blythe "Slick Willie" Clinton, is a permanent STAIN on Bush the Elders political career. I knew the older Bush was a Milquetoast Moderate RINO loser, but every time I saw Bush and Slick Willie palling around, it made me sick to my stomach. Dubyuh has displayed his wussiness in his post-Presidency as he continues to kiss Clinton's ARSE every time he gets the chance. It is no mystery why the Country is in such bad shape...other than Reagan and Trump, we have not had a competent POTUS who fought for WeThePeople since Eisenhower...that is 12 years out of 62 that we had Presidents who actually cared about preserving the God-given rights of WeThePeople.

R vs. D is an illusion. More to the point would be NWO/Globalists vs. Patriots/American Firsters. Or as you put it, RATZ & RINOZ vs. WeThePeople.

The RINOZ must not be given a pass. They work together to bring about the destruction of our nation. The RATZ are right up front; the RINOZ pretend to be polite...you know, the Trump's mean tweets crowd. Pearl Clutchers & the "grown-ups in the room."

So laughable! They think we're stupid. We see right through them.

"Pearl Clutchers & the "grown-ups in the room.""

Exactly...the RATZ/RINOZ are all about subjugating WeThePeople by bombarding us with lies and propoganda designed to induce Fear and Panic in a population of brainwashed snowflakes. The bipartisan PlutocRATZ actually believe the entire U.S. population is as STOOPID as the Mal-educated MORONZ demRATZ have created via the Mis-Education System.

WeThePeople will deal these fascist Scumbagz a debilitating body blow this November, thereby setting up the Knockout blow with Donald Trump's Landslide Victory in November 2024...MUD
